Programme Note:
This work is part of a series of 'Raga' inspired works for flute quartets and quintets. Composed and performed by Derek Charke. The subtitle for this work is 'Raga Dohara', or Raga Double. There are several instances of 'double' at play: (1) a double flute quartet; (2) even though it's notated in common time, there is a double time feel — both duple and triple rhythms are occurring at the same time throughout the piece; and (3) the second flutes play two notes (by singing and playing at the same time) throughout.
